Research group

Chemical biology, diagnostics and therapeutics

We contribute to the progress of new developments in healthcare, the environment, bioenergy systems and bio-nanotechnology.

Part of Chemistry


Our group's research across both chemistry and biology means we are multidisciplinary by nature. We investigate the properties of a wide range of biomolecules, including DNA, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. These can range from small synthetic models to biologically-derived macromolecular (large molecule) complexes. 

We regularly work in collaboration within the University of Southampton, with other institutions or with industrial partners.

Our current research projects include:

  • enzyme catalysis
  • protein-protein interactions
  • post-translational modifications
  • lipidomics

Our people

We research the development of chemistry-driven approaches to modulate proteins’ physiological activity in a wide sense, with the ultimate goal to deliver new tools to study proteins’ function in living systems.
